Retired NFL star Tom Brady said, in hindsight, he will never do a roast again because of the way some of the jokes on Netflix’s “The Greatest Roast of All Time: Tom Brady” affected his kids.

During the seven-time Super Bowl-winning QB’s appearance on “The Pivot” podcast, Brady told the hosts, “I loved when the jokes were about me. I thought they were so fun. I didn’t like the way they affected my kids.”

“It’s the hardest part about, like, the bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way and then all of a sudden you realize I wouldn’t do that again because of the way that it affected, actually the people that I care about the most in the world,” Brady said.

“It makes you, in some ways, a better parent going through it ‘cause again sometimes you are naïve,” he added. “You don’t know, or you get a little like, ‘Oh s***.’”

“When I signed up for that. … I love when people are making fun of me. I always said when I was going through the Deflategate stuff (2015, 2016) that I watched three things on TV: Premiere League soccer, golf, and comedy shows,” Brady continued. “Every time I turned on SportsCenter, it was like, are you f***ing kidding me? I just want to laugh. I wanted to do the roast because Jeff Ross became somebody I knew. But you don’t see the full picture all the time.”

Brady is father to Jack, 16, with Bridget Moynahan. He and ex-wife supermodel Gisele Bündchen are also parents of Benjamin, 14, and Vivian, 11. 


“So, I think it’s a good lesson for me as a parent,” the football legend said. “I’m going to be a better parent as I go forward because of it. And at the same time, I’m happy everyone who was there had a lot of fun.”

“And I do think for me, just outside of that, it always is good if we’re not laughing about things, we’re crying,” he added. “And I think we should have more fun. The guys like, what did we love, we loved laughing in the locker room. Let’s do more of that and love each other and celebrate other people’s success. That, to me, gives everyone a lot of hope.”

During the roast, the comedians cracked jokes about Brady’s split from Bündchen, the “Today” show noted. One comedian at the roast, Nikki Glaser, joked about the end of the super couple’s romance and the occupation of Bundchen’s current beau, Variety noted.

“Tom Brady. Five-time Super Bowl MVP, most career wins, most career touchdowns,” Glaser joked. “You have seven rings — well, eight, now that Gisele gave hers back. The only thing dumber than saying yes to this roast was when you said, ‘Hey babe, you should try jiu-jitsu.’”
